I'm on the downhill slide to 40

11/6/1974
Normally I don't announce my birthday to the world....
or y/k the 10 people who read my blog, but this year seems like a big one....

"36"

...ugh....
I could have stayed 29 forever, but regardless, time marches on.....
No longer the early thirties...
A few more gray hairs...and a few more wrinkles...

BUT

everything seems to be getting better with time....
I love my husband
I love my family.
I love my life.

I've never been happier.......
even if I am on the downhill slide to 40...it's a really fun twisting, twirling slide full of giggles and laughs and love.....and I'm looking forward to the ride.

Me and my mom...coming home from the hospital

Me and my dad



I did mention I have 4 brothers?



Bad hair---really bad hair....
I could have put in a lot of bad hair pictures..
It was the early 90's----What can I say?
H.S. Senior Year with my BFF

H.S. Graduation

College graduation...OU
Wedding Day!

Doctoral Graduation...Univ. of Florida...2002

Me and my brothers...2005

Happy Birthday Liz!!!!
The pictures are so special!
If it makes you feel any better, I am 46 and I am finding that the age issues have less to do with age and more to do with attitude! Have fun with your precious one and stay young!
loves,
Shonni

LOVE IT LIZ! I tried to post earlier, but I guess it didn't go through. If you get two, you know why. ha! I love looking at all the pics. I especially love the one with you in front of the mountains. That is how you looked during just about every sporting event. Took me back. :) I also love the pic of you and I. Boy were we all decked out....hose and all. Why does your hair not look 90's and mine looks SO 90's? ha! Happy Birthday Chica!

You look just the same as you did back in college! 36 is just a number that is not at all how you look or feel (In my head I stopped aging at 26 when Gavin was born). Happy Birthday!
